Twenty days ago we had a big wedding, my youngest son got married. We had waited a long time for this day and prepared for a long time. Everything was fine, it went very well. However, what happened 10 days after the wedding was unexpected and shocking. We live in an apartment with my son and daughter-in-law. They went on vacation for 7 days, when they came back I was very happy. However, I could see that they were not that happy. I didn’t understand what was going on.
A few days after they returned, I heard a strange noise as I walked past their room. I looked and saw my daughter-in-law lying on the ground, trembling. Terrified, I ran inside, hugged her unconscious, and tried to help her. I called my son in tears and told him to hurry home and call an ambulance. He calmly told me not to panic, it would soon pass.
A little later she regained consciousness and my son came home. I was sitting frozen on the couch when my son came up to me and told me she was terminally ill. I knew that, but that didn’t stop me from marrying her. After marriage, it was hard for me to see her like that sometimes, but I got used to it.
I don’t know what to do, I don’t come around. Why does it have to be like this, why does my son have to marry a sick girl and suffer all his life? In short, I am very upset and depressed, I don’t know how to go about living.
